Western classical music lovers will be delighted to know that the brilliant, but forgotten Australian pianist who played Chopin graced the fields of Waverly Convent School in Mussoorie Edward Cahill between 1921-1920.
Australian author and classical musician Michael Moran, who is also nephew of pianist Edward Cahill, revealed this here today. Michael Moran is presently busy writing a book on Edward Cahill.
Speaking exclusively to The Tribune on the telephone, he said Edward was a pianist par excellence and was born in 1885. He was the pianist, who visited Mussoorie and graced the lawns of a convent school (presumably Waverly) with his talent, as a part of a huge concert tour of India and the
far-east that lasted from 1919 to 1921.
